Abstract The opening years of the 21st century have seen profound shifts in Australian Indigenous affairs. The essays in this collection bring a fresh and challenging approach to the study of Australia's relationship with Indigenous otherness. The authors examine diverse aspects of contemporary Australian race relations, from the Indigenous music industry, to Toyotas in remote communities, to the repatriation of sacred objects, to the reception of the New History in the bush. These challenging and controversial contributions to current debates show how anthropology is ideally positioned to bring new insights to Indigenous studies. Contributors include Andrew Lattas, Elizabeth Povinelli, Gillian Cowlishaw, Franca Tamasari, Tim Rowse and David Turnbull. ["Aware of the usual 'moves' anthropologists make, this collection begins organically from the thinking and doing that goes on in real situations, and launches a fresh new approach within indigenous domains." Professor Stephen Muecke, University of Technology, Sydney] ['A challenging collection of ethnographies linked by a critical view of current Indigenous studies which leads us to question the future of anthropology in relation to the future existence of Indigenous societies.' Professor Barbara Glowczewski-Barker, College de France and James Cook University] ['This book... is well worth the read. However, there is more work to be done because white possession remains under-theorised as the most powerful aspect of the relationality that the contributors to this volume have claimed to address.'
